Alibaba Cloud has introduced a digital human video creation tool called Live Portrait, according to an August 16 report by Chinese media outlet 36Kr. Users can generate a video of a digital human with speech capabilities by uploading a photo along with a piece of text or voice input. Live Portrait can be applied in various scenarios including livestreaming, chatbots, and corporate marketing, the report said. Currently, Live Portrait is available for trial on the Alibaba-backed open-source community ModelScope, and its underlying technologies have been featured at top international AI conferences such as CVPR and ICCV, as per 36Kr.
